Kendrick Lamar Guests On TBS’ Final Four Pre-Game Show
Kendrick Lamar chopped it up at the TBS pre-game desk before headlining the March Madness Music Festival.
Kendrick Lamar was the headlining performer tonight at the March Madness Music Festival in Houston, the host city of this year’s Final Four. His performance drew a massive crowd and did well to suck some attention away from two underwhelming semifinal matchups, but earlier in the day, before Villanova obliterated Oklahoma, Kendrick stopped by TBS’ pre-game show for a highly entertaining chat with Charles Barkley, Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith, and Clark Kellogg.
Over the course of the interview, Kendrick rates his skills as a basketball player (8.5/10) and critiques Charles Barkley’s rendition of “One Shining Moment” as well as an impromptu freestyle rapped by Ernie Johnson alongside Nicki Minaj from an old episode of Inside the NBA. He’s not afraid to point out either man’s cringeworthy vocals, but he maintains that they killed it attitude-wise.
After watching the interview, head here to see footage of Kendrick performing “untitled 07 | levitate” during tonight’s show in downtown Houston.
